by the annenberg/cpb project this is siena, a wonderfully preserved medieval city in central italy. at its heyday around 1300, it was one of the most civilized and prosperous places in europe. siena and other italian city-states can stand as a new beginning in our story of western art. hitherto, the old medieval world view had, put simply, divided the classes of society into the aristocracy at the top, the church, and the laboring peasantry at the bottom. in places like this, we see for the first time a new class, conscious of its own identity-- the merchants. these cities were no longer controlled by feudal lords. they were republics. here in siena, several thousand citizens were eligible for election to the governing bodies which met down there in the palazzo publica. and in the palazzo, there is a fresco painted in the 1340s which encapsulates their faith in the secular arts of government, in the moderating power of reason in human society. it's called the effects of good government. this marvous fresco, painted by ambrogio lorenzetti, was the first panoramic landscape on this scale in western

in this very small part of our city and project jobs at 40,725 and while these are really great numbers, i believe in growth and density, we have to make sure that our neighborhoods have the faith that we are going to be able to provide the infrastructure that is needed to support this development and growth. otherwise, the question is should we continue to grow, if we are not able to provide that level of infrastructure and on the second issue that several of the residents brought up, including dph, thinking about our air quality, and i would be really interested in talking about avalos and mar, and their part of the bay area air quality and management district, and i would like to learn little bit more about that. i definitely hear that loud and clear, i know in my own house you know that just the windows that i open have a thick layer of black dust and the windows that i never open i never have to clean the sills and it is clearly from the congestion in the neighborhood and i know that that is real and i am glad that was brought up and i was struck in the budget and legislative analyst

't pay for that room. the city is paying for that room but the individual commits to participating 2-3 times a week in case management. this is a similar situation that we would be working with someone and they would agree we would pay the storage so they are not giving up this property that they may decide is a period of time form of housing for them down the road. we would store it which is about $150 a month for a vehicle . we are looking at 4-5 vehicles but now that we have dedicated $7,000 for this purpose. we are going to be flexible as people have needs, but the commitment is they participate in case management leading to permanent housing. >> my question is how long do they engage in case management. when you are in services, there is a termination period, right? >> there is variations. if you go into a room and they shut that room and they don't meet with that person, that is a person that is not going to be successful in the program. i think we are going to be successful and open-ended. i often find that rules are not going to work. as long as the person is working on goals

and the food resources. and and the city wide analysis. >> and for the district level. and for the analysis for the population of the groups of children and families. and the disabilities and. and you will see the data from the two districts is 66 and it is not surprising that district six gets the highest rates of food insecurity and it is a hub for services. and service provided are located. and you even have the neighborhood focus, and well as the coalition and i think that you can see from this, this is the highest number of for the homeless and one of the highest number of the housing units without kitchens. and this shows you the food program that are available and it has the highest concentration of food resource and even with all of these resources, we will know that there are gaps that the food is increases and i am going to go to another district which you might not think of as being viewed as having a high number of food insecure residents and it is district one and it is the richmond district. we have only pull odd data from just seniors, because there is a high number of senior
